10th Annual Winter Intensive

Join us for our 10th winter together…
Developed for pre-professional and professional dancers, our Annual Winter Intensive celebrates the company's movement style, creative ideas and artistic philosophy. Our workshops have always been safe havens for students to uncover their individuality in a supportive atmosphere that allows everyone to work at their own level. All of us possess unique qualities as dancers and artists, and learning to embrace those traits pushes us to new places. – DOUG VARONE
